SATONE Gives 5 Minutes of His TimeJuxtapoz // Thursday, 17 May 2012
German artist Rafael Gerlach, aka SATONE, as profiled in our June issue on newsstands now, is an illustrator and self-employed artist living and working in Munich who originally hails from Venezuela. The skilled graphic designer discovered his interest in graffiti early on, intently developing his style by finding a formal vocabulary that perpetrated a fascinating middle course between technocracy and the artwork of imaginary worlds. The figures seem futuristic abstract—still don't miss a certain clemency by having organic forms and faces. The skillful mixture of graphic style and free acrylic elements brings suspense and opens up worlds, in which graphic design, illustration, and abstract art melt into an inseparable unity.
SATONE explains here his latest work at a Munich park, a colorful piece of art describing his feelings surrounding the grievance inside an assumed family relationship between father, mother, and children. Take a 5 minute short into SATONE's work, the city of Munich, his artist studio, and commentary by the artist.
